Dentapreg® offers a minimally invasive, esthetic and affordable solution for long term temporaries in the posterior area.
Unlike other materials, Dentapreg® strips make it possible to build a provisional bridge chair-side in a single visit, thus saving time and costs and allowing immediate tooth replacement using standard crown and bridge composite. Thanks to the provisional solution it is possible to postpone the final treatment, such as a ceramic bridge or implant.
Dentapreg® provides a minimally invasive solution for creating a posterior bridge framework which is not only strong but also very reliable. Dentapreg® strips do not require large preparation (such as when placing a ceramic bridge) and therefore allow the dentist to respect the properties of the abutment teeth.
Dentapreg® posterior bridges can be made with several different types of retention (inlay, onlay, slot, partial crown prep, wing retention, etc.) and pontics. You can make a pontic out of composite build-up material, use prefabricated denture tooth or even use the original tooth with the root cut off.
For posterior bridges, we recommend using Dentapreg® PFU
for its enhanced strength and convenient size. It is very easy to use
and you do not need any special instruments or equipment as it is compatible with all light-curing composites. Dentapreg® is suitable for patients allergic to metals, as it is hypoallergenic.mIn cases when the neighboring teeth have a very minimal preparation, Dentapreg® PFU can be easily made thinner or narrower by splitting it
